HARARE City say they had to make last minute signings to strengthen the team in a tough Premiership campaign that starts with a CAPS United clash at National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
This week the Sunshine Boys concluded Elisha Muroiwa and Kuda Musharu deals.
Muroiwa was with Tanzanian side Singida last year while Musharu was at How Mine, the club that gave
Harare City the lifeline after they were dissolved.
Harare City secretary general Mathew Marara said:
“We had planned all along with division one in mind. But after agreeing to play in the Premiership after the invitation, we needed to strengthen certain areas.
“That is the reason we have taken one experienced defender and another experienced striker.”
Harare City were left with mostly young players as they prepared for life in division one.
Two of their experienced defenders last year Jimmy Tegere and Farai Madhanhanga left. Tigere is now in Dynamos books while Madhanhanga is on loan at FC Platinum.
Muroiwa has previously played for Dynamos and the Warriors.
“He (Muroiwa) has signed a two year deal. We are happy with the two signings and we believe we will be ready for the new season.”
Initially, Musharu had been linked with a move to Dynamos who are also looking for another striker.
Indications are that City, who are desperate to try and give a better show than last year, then hijacked the deal to sign the tried and tested striker.
Harare City will face CAPS United at National Sports Stadium on Sunday in their season opener.
Coach Mark Harrison has also indicated that they can hold their own against some of Premiership’s best teams.
